Beregszaszy Eager For Nashville Debut
LEBANON, Tennessee (August 9, 2006) - - After a one week break in the midst of 13 races in 11 weeks, ARCA Rookie Paul Beregszaszy and his Bereg Racing team have been working around the clock preparing to make their debut this Saturday in the ARCA 200 from Nashville Superspeedway.
With an competitive field expected for the 14th event on the 2006 ARCA calendar, Beregszaszy along with his team have taken every effort to guarantee a berth in the starting field including purchasing new equipment and forming an alliance with Joe Gibbs Racing, a proven championship organization in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series.
When the team unloads on Thursday, the No. 77 World Water Solutions Chevrolet will boast a 2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS purchased from the JGR (Joe Gibbs Racing) stable with an influential setup which should aid the former USAC competitor this weekend.
"The Bereg Racing team is looking forward to this weekend at Nashville," said Beregszaszy who also carries experience in the Porsche Super Cup Series in Germany and Austria. "We've made every effort to unload as a professional race team and I know we'll impress a lot of people in Nashville. We're starting our season late so we have to make every effort to perform well, hopefully we can do that."
Besides no prior experience at Nashville Superspeedway, Beregszaszy does have seat time in an ARCA RE/MAX Series car at Kentucky Speedway. Beregszaszy attempted both events at the 1.5-mile speed plant, but mechanical failures in both venues forced Beregszaszy from making the starting lineup. This time, the driver is confident all the bugs are gone and the team is ready for competition.
"There's a lot that goes into any program. We had some early hiccups. We really should have competed in two ARCA events this season, but it wasn't meant to be. I'm heading into the track this week with an open-mind and eager for a solid performance at Nashville."
He continued, "Nashville is a very unique track. It's concrete and will the first time I've attempted to compete on a concrete track in a stock car. My momentum is high based upon our hard working and endless efforts in the shop thanks to the help of some higher sources. I've seen previous races at the track so I think I have a pretty good idea on how to maneuver around the track."
Beregszaszy will have to qualify his machine on time Friday afternoon to earn his first ARCA start. While the pressure is on, Beregszaszy doesn't feel the heat, yet. "At our last event at Kentucky we practiced well enough that we would have made the field on time. We've improved our equipment in order to bypass any worries. When push comes to shove, it's up to the driver and I'm confident that a top-15 start is realistic for our team."
Backing Beregszaszy's efforts this weekend is World Water Solutions. WWS (World Water Solutions) will adorn full sponsorship of the No. 77 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS for the second event at Nashville Superspeedway this season. World Water Solutions is a brand new company set to launch later this year.
World Water Solutions Inc. is a part of the international Frastacky group of companies.
The purpose of WWSI is to provide water, wastewater and desalination services to the marketplace.
"World Water Solutions is taking an extreme approach to their marketing strategies by launching an immediate campaign effort in the ARCA RE/MAX Series and we're excited about it. Bereg Racing plans to focus our efforts and give our sponsor the exposure they are looking for. Once World Water Solutions launches exclusively it's going to be big.
Following Saturday's race at Nashville Superspeedway, Bereg Racing will regroup and prepare for further starts at Chicagoland Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway. The team is also in serious negations with several teams in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series to field an effort for Beregszaszy later this season.
"We are our broadening our horizons to better fulfill our sponsor's needs following the conclusion of the ARCA RE/MAX Series season," added Beregszaszy. "We are planning an intense racing schedule in 2007 and plan to use both series to aid our program."
The team has also launched a brand new racing website in preparations for this weekend's activities. BeregRacing.com offers the latest information on the team. From results, to biographies, sponsors and fan interaction, BeregRacing.com.
"We are very proud of our website especially with the launching occurring the week of Nashville," he added. "Our website is very professional and makes us look like the real deal. That's the integrity we want."
Rolling into Nashville, Beregszaszy a native of Arizona has no prior ARCA RE/MAX Series starts to his resume but holds considerable seat time at Kentucky Speedway just a few hours from Nashville Superspeedway.
The ARCA 200 (150 laps/200 miles) is the 14th of 23 events on the 2006 ARCA RE/MAX Series schedule. Practice begins August 11th with a two and half hour (11:00am-1:30pm CST) session planned.
